You only get out of something what you put in to it.

It has been a few months since my last post.  To my loyal subscribers, my sincerest apologies.  Like many business owners, I have been deeply entrenched in the fight against current economic conditions.  The good news is I believe we are winning.  I hope this is the case for you as well.
Today, I wanted to write about a saying I’ve lived by most of my adult life.  Strangely enough, the first place I ever came across this statement was when I was pledging a fraternity during college.
This statement that has become a lifestyle for me is “You only get out of something what you put in to it”.
It’s a simple theory but I often find myself at an advantage over others because I am able and wiling to embrace this saying as a way to take on any task or situation.  The saying can be applied anywhere including in business, parenting, physical well being and yes even in love or relationships.
In this economy, business owners and employees are being tested like never before on this very important and somewhat philosophical approach.
As business owners, what are you willing to put in to save and grow your company?  Are you willing to make cold calls?  Are you wiling to go door to door?  Are you willing to spend money to make money?  Are you willing to sacrifice your weekends?  Are you willing to work late?  Are you willing to come down from your ivory tower and take on any task necessary to get the job done?
Where are your limits during these times?
Whether you are an owner, manager or just starting your business career, what you “WANT” ultimately is not a natural right as some might have you believe.  What you “OBTAIN” is a direct result of what you put in to it.
